Kim Kardashian is not impressed with Taylor Swift right now. And she’s calling her out in a big way.
The 35-year-old has opened up about Swifty’s rumoured feud with husband Kanye West, which reignited when Kanye released ‘Famous’, which included lyrics about Taylor.
‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that b**ch famous’, he said.
At the time, people were shocked at the song lyrics, with many fans taking to Twitter to slam West. Taylor then alluded to his behaviour in her Grammys acceptance speech by telling women not to let anyone else ‘undercut’ their success.
But now, Kim wants to life the lid on what really happened. And she’s revealed that Taylor actually knew about the lyrics the whole time, and was simply ‘playing the victim’. Eep.
‘She totally knew that [‘Famous’] was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t,’ Kim told GQ, before adding that there’s video proof of Taylor approving the lyrics on the phone to Kanye.
‘I swear, my husband gets so much s**t for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved,’ Kim said.
‘What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval? Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew.’
Crikey. That’s one huge allegation. And Kim says she’s still confused about why Taylor decided to play dumb.
‘I don’t know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden… It was funny because [on the call] she said, “When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I’m so against this, and I’ll just laugh and say, “The joke’s on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.’
‘I’m like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again’, she added.
A rep for Taylor has since replied with a statement that reads: ‘Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West. However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect.
‘Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place. It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term, “that b***h” in referencing her.
‘A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.’
Hmm. We don’t see these two being pals anytime soon…
